MathLink C Function

MLGetReal32()

int MLGetReal32(MLINK link, float *x)
gets a single-precision floating-point number from link and stores it as a float in x.
  • MLGetReal32() returns 0 in the event of an error, and a nonzero value if the function succeeds.
  • Use MLError() to retrieve the error code if MLGetReal32() fails.
  • MLGetReal32() is declared in the MathLink header file mathlink.h.
#include "mathlink.h"

/* read a single-precision floating-point number from a link */

void f(MLINK lp)
{
    float r;

    if(! MLGetReal32(lp, &r))
        { /* unable to read the floating-point number from lp */ }

    /* ... */
}
